150-brooklyn-now-thenBrooklyn Then And Now (Brooklyn Photo Book)
The greatest borough of the greatest city on Earth deserves its own special history, and Marcia Reiss has provided it. BROOKLYN THEN AND NOW is a reminder that Manhattan is not the only place that underwent enormous changes over the last century and a half. Capturing Brooklyn in recent photos and juxtaposing them with shots of the same area 50, 75, 100 or 125 earlier, dramatizes the growth that Brooklyn (the fourth largest city in America before the 1898 consolidation) experienced. It’s too bad that you can’t “take a look inside” this book on this website, but take my word for it, it’s jammed with great photos!
